artnet news さんから社会のタブーを打ち破る10人の女性アーティストに選ばれました。

Megumi Igarashi

The Japanese artist is fighting misogyny with 3-D printed vagina kayaks. It may sound silly, but she brewed up enough controversy that she was arrested twice for “obscene” art (see Japanese Artist Arrested Over 3D-Scanned Vagina Boat Project). The artist was later released from prison when an online petition garnered more than 21,000 signatures. On her campaign site, Igarashi wrote, “Manko, pussy, has been such a taboo in the Japanese society. Penis, on the other hand, has been used in illustrations and signed as a part of pop culture.”
